#ASW17 Savings Focus: Saving Automatically

America Saves Week is finally here, and we are excited that our savings focus for day one focuses on the importance and benefits of saving automatically.

If you’ve already taken the America Saves pledge or have been a regular reader of the America Saves blog, you’ve heard this message loud and clear: automatic savings is not only our favorite wealth-building method, it’s also the easiest and most effective way to save.

It can be hard to put aside money for savings, but there is an easy way to save money without ever missing it by making your savings automatic in 2017. Already saving automatically? Find ways to automate other aspects of your financial life this year.
